Top sights in Barcelona
The Poble Espanyol is a one-of-a-kind museum on Barcelona's famed Montjuic hill: made up of 117 buildings, the "museum" is actually a full-sized Iberian village. Filled with great spots to indulge in the local gastronomy, here are our recommendations!
Hidden away, this gem of a restaurant is absolutely worth seeking out. Tapes Tapas is one of those rare spots where you can enjoy exquisite tapas without breaking the bank.
The famous El Tablao de Carmen hosts some of the most amazing flamenco shows in Barcelona. Insider's tip: book a table downstairs, you'll have a much better view of the dancers!
Looking for a no-frills yet delicious traditional meal at a reasonable price? Then La Font de Prades is the place for you. The charming outside area is ideal for balmy evenings.
At the top of the village, there's a large and beautiful picnic area, offering an idyllic spot for families to enjoy an open-air meal in the shade of the pine trees.
Picnics are allowed throughout the village, so you can also enjoy a snack in one of the many picturesque squares, such as the large Plaza Mayor or the quaint Plaza de la Fuente.
Though a visit to the Poble Espanyol is delightful on any sunny day, it's especially worth it during the summer months thanks to the many outdoor concerts and events. The outdoor cinema is also open in the summer – the perfect cap to a day of walking and discovery.
Make sure to check out the 40 or so artisans throughout the village, many of whom will exhibit their craft for your enjoyment. The glass blower is particularly popular.

What people are saying about Poble Espanyol
A bit of a queue but it goes down quickly enough. Disappointed that a whole group 15 plus Russians pushed in front of us and no body said anything! However I was glad they were out of the way! Very rude! But the cable car was well worth it for the views! I would recommend you get on at mirador go down the rack then all the back up to the castle ... the queue are shorter there!
Great regular service, clean and tidy buses, very helpful audio and friendly staff
Easy book online service, two good routes to choose from. Devices on board were great..rain cover upstairs, good audio and helpful staff.
It was a lovely day to see the sites and amazing buildings of Barcelona. Also having the opportunity to get on and off to visit the parks then enjoy ice creams along the way made our day more enjoyable. I would recommend everyone does this when visiting this beautiful city.
It is very helpful to get to see all the attractions and decide which we want to take more time at. It gave me a broad look of the city
